The Sapphire Sisters

Since the late ’90s, The Sapphire Sisters’ Daughters of Our Mothers Festival has provided an annual opportunity for female-identifying musicians to find strength in harmony and sisterhood in song. And the coming together of this sacred community of esoteric folk musicians may never have been so important as it is this year. Just read the news, you guys. Now is a time for us to be marching, joining hands, setting cop cars on fire, and above all lifting our voices to sing. Because whether you’re a son, a daughter, a sister, a grandmother, or a father – we’re all daughters of our mothers.

This year’s line-up includes headliners The Sapphire Sisters, with special guests January Schonfeld and more!

If you love mid-’90s, female singer-songwriters, UCB has a show for you. On Friday, September 16th, you’re invited to the Lilith Fair 20 Year Reunion Show, a celebratory musical tribute to the defining Amero-Canadian feminist touring festival of the last century.

In addition to being hosted by Sarah McLachlan and Ani DiFranco (Kait Thompson and Kat Palardy) and featuring appearances by many other returning Lilith Fair stars, the night’s entertainment will also feature three Lost Moon Radio favorites: January Schonfeld (Leslie Korein) from Million Dollar Hair and our ever-popular folk rock duo the Sapphire Sisters (Jen Burton and Martha Marion), who will be headlining.

LMR NYC Tour

Lost Moon Radio: Journeys

Lost Moon Radio makes its first NYC appearance with an evening of its award-winning sketches and songs exploring the theme of “Journeys.” Three shows, three chances to see this “hilarious hour of sketch, music and a over arching story that plays throughout” (LAist). The Huffington Post calls Lost Moon Radio “rock and roll comedy that exceeds expectations … silly while avoiding stupid, edgy without being obnoxious and fresh without feeling forced. The ensemble is a seamless display of talents in absolute cohesion.”

We’re headed to the always fabulous Hollywood Fringe Festival for our fourth year, and we’re bringing a brand-new show: Million Dollar Hair. Come celebrate the life and death of fictional music icon Bernie Schonfeld in this unforgettable tribute concert. Over five decades in the industry, the groundbreaking music producer, record label owner, and amateur homeopath made history with his nontraditional taste and unforgettable haircut. Learn of his adventures (and scandals!) from the rock stars, legends, and family members who knew Bernie best in this song (and joke!) filled evening. If you combined Dylan going electric with the premiere of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring and poured it over the Beatles at Shea Stadium, that event wouldn’t be half as big as Million Dollar Hair.

Needless to say, we’re super excited to be returning to the festival where we nabbed two “Best of Comedy” awards and the 2012 “Top of the Fringe” prize. Get your tickets now for one of our nine performances!
